Native to Jamaica, this evergreen woody vine is commonly cultivated all around the world. The ornamental features are its foliage and the flowers. The leaves are palmately divided into five to seven segments, and are very atractive smooth green color. The noticable long red flowers are in groups. Even before the flowers emerge the buds are a positive feature, because they look like small berries.
